No 1 The Bank restaurant in Perth’s excellent Parklands Hotel is an informal bistro that enjoys terrific views overlooking South Inch Park and the hotel’s own grounds. The dining room is conservatory style with smart leather seating in the sleek modern style, white table linens and those lovely views. The chef uses fresh local produce to create a varied, seasonally changing menu serving from breakfast until late. In sunny weather bistro meals are also served on the terrace at the front of the hotel. Parklands has been showered with awards and No 1 The Bank has become Perth’s top spot for smart, informal dining.

Food, service and ambience is always to high standard, and for our friends who love trains they were absolutely thrilled when ever one went passed. Not intrusive in any way, just a prompt for us to start to plan a new trip, adding a bonus to lovely occasion.

The starters and desserts were absolutely gorgeous. We all raved about the celeriac, pear and ginger soup - so smooth and creamy. Chocolate dessert with coffee ice cream worked well, though rich, and it was a pleasant change to see such unusual flavours of ice cream offered, such as cinnamon. Although quite imaginative overall there was a rather poor choice... More

We stayed as part of a voucher deal and were very much treated as though we were second rate guests. They highlighted that we were 'Voucher Guests' four times within the first hour of arrival. Despite this the food was very good. After the meal I ordered a double cognac which looked rather small so when ordering a second one... More

I really enjoyed my Chicken Caesar Salad but my husband reckoned this was his best Beefburger EVER (and he is quite an expert!). Staff friendly. We ate on the terrace overlooking the well kept gardens. This was an Itison deal and certainly one that we would take up again.

We were booking a function and rooms, so we stayed for some dinner and had a lovely meal. Menu is compact with around 10-12 each of starters, mains and desserts. The menu features local produce and we had carrot and coriander soup and Dunkeld smoked salmon to start, ribeye steaks for main and these were great, well cooked and accompanied... More

We had a lovely meal at No1 The Bank when staying at The Parklands, the smoked salmon starter was particularly good and the venison was delicious, the plaice was cooked to perfection and the sticky toffee pudding was a very tasty treat. We cannot fault the meal or the service and hope to return soon.

Ordered soup for starters which arrived almost cold. Small portion main course. 6 chips and the smallest piece of fish I have ever seen. Overall a very disappointing meal.

Felt rushed through starter and main then staff disappeared for dessert and bill ! Food quality mixed - starters were much better than mains although both steaks were cooked to perfection. Children's fish was greasy and the wine advertised as a 2009 was actually a 2012 (but same price!) Overall, was expensive for what it was, not sure we would... More
